Later on this morning I went to Cresswell Pond with LMcD. A Curlew Sandpiper was with 30 Dunlin on Lynemouth flash as we passed.
The pond was full of wildfowl with Wigeon, Gadwall, Tufted Duck and Teal in large numbers. 2 early female Pintail were also amongst the duck along with a few Shoveler.
A female Shoveler is coincidentally the best bird I have seen at West Hartford recently when I saw one fly off on Sunday evening.
